Actually, the self-proclaimed advocates here who insist on terms like
“MicroSloft, MicroSh*t, Windoze” mildly amuse me. (OTOH, I don’t recall
seeing terms like “LinSux” over in the advocacy groups for windows, os2
and the like).
And now we have a whole sites named linsux.. It’s true: What comes around goes around.
yesterday, i caught my first glimpse at windows 95. it was horrid! it
still uses crappy emm386 and himem, it STILL barely runs protected mode,
it takes 3 minutes to boot on a p90 with 32 megs of ram and it STILL
utilizes crappy cooperative multitasking. i REALLY don’t think that
Win 95 has a chance up against Linux.
Indeed, didn’t you know that Linux was the dominating system from 1995 to 1998?
“worksforme” in 1995:
>If you are a hobbiest, or setting up TCP/IP servers or gateways, Linux
>would work. If you are a professional, Linux CAN’T work for you.
I am a professional.
Linux WORKS for me.
Linux can do everything anything else can do, except better
I am here to state facts, not an opinion. So here we go:
Word processing:Linux has it, it is called ez. Execute it by typing ez at the prompt.
Databasing:ez doubles as a database, if you should require it.
Video/graphical progs:xv is the main Linux graphical display(good
old Visual Schnauzer and its rotating fish). Resolution is altered as
per X window system, and, with enough RAM(8-16 should do the trick),
swapping is minimal and the picture comes up almost right away.
Games:/usr/games can hold any game you want. You can put your
old DOS games in Dosemu, or you can find linux equivalents of these
games(for example:linuxxdoom or linuxsdoom) and put them in your linux
Yes, this beats Word, Photoshop and all the other noob programs!
A prediction from 1995:
Microsfot applications are the hottest target for software piracy
around the world, from which Bill Gates do not earn much
The Microsoft compiler
suit will no longer sell. Give Linux 95 one more year, we will see
major applications appearing on Linux platform.
When good applications appear on Linux, Microsoft stronghold on the
Office suit will be threatened. Bill Gates has only one more year to
enjoy his fortune. When this happens, I suggest Bill Gates move his
Office suit to Linux, just like what he did for MacOS
Yeah… MS has lost so much money since 1995… I think the best way to survive in this world is to listen to freetard predictions, and then do the exact opposite.. This way, you will never fail!
